Just For Fun Friday...Circle Frames

Gosh, this is late today...went with dh to work, shopping @ GFS and had a very tasty Mexican lunch.  
So while I am a bit late with my JFF cards it was a great day :)
I hope you've all had just as nice a day.

Today's cards are made using the new Circle Frames stamp at JFF Stamps.  I did a little measuring and you can fit 4 of the circles on a 5x7" card (the long side).  So you actually end up stamping the circles twice but that's no big deal.  JFF also offers a matching plastic Circle Masking Template that allows you to stamp and ink the circle w/o getting any ink on the rest of your card!

You can of course make a circle template using a paper punch or die-cut machine to create a similar effect.

As far as today's sketch...I used 4 circles along the bottom of the card and added a sentiment above.  You can choose to stamp your background as I did or substitute plain cardstock or pattern papers.

And here are today's cards....

You're Invited Game Night Invitation

I used the game cube stamp and a vareity of inks and Stickles Glitter Glue to embellish the circles.

Oriental Garden Gift Card

I thought it would be fun to make a very springy card adorned with Cherry Blossoms to brighten some one's day!  I used a bit of Smooch ink to highlight the blossoms.  I love that ink!
